What Is the advised way to log exceptions from a Python onboarding script to Splunk.
e.g when I have:
except TypeError as te: print("Type Error: %s" % te) except Exception as e: print("Unhandled Error is %s" % e)
I want to log it inside Splunk so I can see what went wrong. I do not want to log it to the source type of the onboarding script but prefer to have it in _internal so if there is no data for a source type I know right away something is wrong without having to know anything about the expected format of the events. (results = 0 means something is wrong).
PS How do I add the tag data-onboarding?

As for generating logs into _internal or somewhere else please have a look here :
Python logs are by default logged into:
